[RC] one more Actor who could ride....oh yea and tank heaters. - June Scheunemann & Mike Bernsdorf
Just had to add another actor who could ride to the list. Anyone
remember Richard Farnsworth???? He did alot of westerns but, he also
did the movie "Sylvester"...now the movie wasn't so good but, I read
that he actually did the riding when the horse was "dancing" . He was
supposedly quite an accomplished rider of varying disciplines.
also need to add to the comments on tank heaters. Here in Wisconsin we
use the ones that fit in the bottom drain holes of the rubbermaid style
troughs. We have had extremely good luck with them. They kept the
water around 40 degrees.....and since the heater is on the bottomw of
the trough we have not had any of the "kids" play with them. We do use
a silicone sealer when installing them to help keep the rubber gasket
from leaking. We also feed a bran mash beet pulp mixture (like warm
horsey oatmeal) the mornings it is cold here. The whole gang loves it
and we haven't had a problem with horses colicking when the weather
changes. We feed it quite wet and the barn sounds like nothing but, a
huge slurpy when all are in eating but, they love it!!!
